User Reviews

The First series was the best
1 August 2003 | by (Willenhall, England) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed both series but the first was easily the best. There was more intrigue and better stories. I was particularly amused by the painting of the church ceiling in the second series but I cannot remember much about the rest. The first series was fresh with vibrant storylines and needless to say an excellent cast.
